From the view of things, it looks like Collison is day to day and coach Vogel is preparing as if he is not going to play. If thats the case, the Bulls will win this game.

The previous game we had way too many TO's.
Must cut down on them.

The Pacers gameplan inst going to change, so derrick and his teammates have to be ready to receive a pass once Rose gets doubled.

This is somewhat the game I would be fine with the Bulls losing. Usually they get very strong play following a disappointing loss. I wouldn't mind seeing Pacers grab a home game here, refocus the Bulls defensive minds and have them come out strong the last two before heading to the 2nd round (moreso than losing a game 4 and only winning one strong game prior to round 2).


Still, it's hard to pick them to lose a game when they've done about all they can to lose the first two and the Pacers still can't pull their ***** out of their trash-talking mouths to finish a game.

Great game thread. The Pacers are just outmatched in this series and Game 1 proved. Game 1 was a dream for the Pacers hitting all those 3's and Psycho T on fire and they still lost. They aren't getting that again with the Bulls defense. My gut still says this is a sweep.

Collison is playing tonight.

This game will depend on which team show up (for Bulls). Boozer, Deng and Noah - are they ready to play offensively??? Bulls need atlesat 2 of these 3 to play good enough offensively for all of 48 minutes not just in spurts.

Bulls also need to control their Turnovers. Bulls had 23 turnovers and usually 95% of the time team with that many turnovers never win. Good think bulls squeaked out a win.

Bulls Bench-Mob also need to play better and shoot better.

Still the only Bulls responses are that the Bulls haven't won big because they played down to an "awful" team....2 games in a row?.....in the playoffs? I'm not buying it. The Bulls are playing harder than any playoff team I've seen (but the pacers), and basically Indiana is just a touch matchup for everybody but Rose because of their size. They actually pull down some rebounds, and they coulda won either game 1 or 2.

And also redwhiteandblue...when have the Pacers trash talked? Granger said he preferred the Bulls over the Celtics, and the entire team has just said they're not just gonna lay down. That's not trash talking. That's trying to take advantage of the gift you're given when such a young team gets into the playoffs despite a losing record. And seriously...and I doubt you have ever seen a Pacers/Celtics game the past couple years....THAT would be an easy sweep. The Celtics are still the team to beat in the East and the Pacers match up horribly with them.

I agree, being a Pacer fan, the thought of playing the celtics makes me cringe.. that's one team I didn't want to see in round one, All that playoff experience, And Indiana just doesn't match up well with them at all! Im not sure why being confident, or trying to take advantage of your opportunity is trash talking. At this point im fine with whatever comes out of this series because it has given our young team some confidence, exposure, and experience.

Doesn't matter to me it's still on local tv in Chicago. I guess people didn't think it was going to me much of a series, so it got the shaft with lack of national tv this game and bad game times.

They actually pull down some rebounds, and they coulda won either game 1 or 2.

I dunno if they played down to the Pacers, but they have played bad basketball the first two games. The first game was lack of defense mixed with too many turnovers, and second game was terrible shooting night mixed with too many turnovers. There's going to be a game when they shoot decent like game one and also play defense like game two. It's not like the Pacers are doing anything to cause either. Sure you could give them some credit for all the turnovers. But most of those turnovers are the Bulls just being careless with the basketball. If you saw this team a lot this year, you would know the difference between game 1 +2 compared to how the Bulls are capable of playing. They didn't go 12-0 vs contending teams since early December or 53-12 overall since then by playing like this very often. Anyways I think the Bulls will have a better combo of defense, decent shooting night and less turnovers tonight. Which will lead to them winning something like 97-85.

Why though, look at how the Celtics have played the Knicks. Last game they didn't even have Billups and Amare out for the second half too. You guys be played the Knicks really well the last month plus. You might be up 2-0 on the Celtics right now if you were playing them. When you consider you wouldn't be out rebounded nearly as much against that team and wouldn't have one guy taking over the game late in Rose. I will admit the Pacers are a good young team and I could see them winning 48-50 next year. Sure the Bulls aren't playing their best(just like say the Lakers), but the Pacers have no quit in them and are making it tough on them still. If the Bucks or Bobcats had that spot, the Bulls would have won those games by 10-15 even playing bad.

I agree. Pacers have played pretty good and they played pretty good defense as well. I think they are doing a pretty good job on Boozer/Deng/Noah and they are also trying everything that they could to stop/slow down Rose.

1 out of 4 is working. Boozer had a Solid 1st half last game, Deng has played good in spurts, Noah is good in rebounding and defense but offensively, very very bad at 30% TS% for a center. :facepalm: Bogans is a big ZERO. Our bench hasn't been good either.

Pacers can certainly play better but if both teams bring their A games, I like bulls chances pretty easily.

Gotta give TON of credit to Pacers for moving the ball, making the right play and not backing down and punching right back. They are not playing like your typical 8th seed team. They remind me of Bulls team (with Gordon/Nocioni/Hinrich/etc) that took Heat team in 06 to the fullest and played the toughest.

Also ton of credit to their coach for preparing and getting the right mindset to his players.

Well, it game 1 we pretty much saw the best the Pacers can offer and the Bulls still won. In game 2 we saw about the worst the Bulls can offer and it was still a Bulls win. So for the Pacers to win we are going to have to see a combination of the two and I just don't think its going to happen.

Collison or not, I got the Bulls here.

Everyone thinks the home crowd will give the pacers a slight edge based on the play of the last two games, but I don't see the Bulls playing 3 horrific games in a row. I'm looking for Deng and even Bogans to help out Rose on offense, and for the team in general to cut back on mistakes and keep up the defense from game 2.

It's already been 3 games in a row against the Pacers the Bulls have "played badly." When does it stop being a fluke and become a trend?

It's already been 3 games in a row against the Pacers the Bulls have "played badly." When does it stop being a fluke and become a trend?

so you're telling me the pacers shooting 56% from 3 and the bulls turning the ball over 22 times is a trend?

lol, no.

The Bulls are a much better team, and once they stop shooting themselves in the foot, they'll improve.

And it becomes a trend when the pacers actually win a game when the bulls are playing like a D league team. Two atrocious showings and Indy still can't capitalize.

I'm still expecting a sweep.

What happen in the first 3 games? The Bulls dominated, and the last regular season game vs the Pacers was a back to back road game for them. The fact they allowed 89 points through 3 quarters showed the lack of effort they had in that game. Overall the Bulls have won 5 of 6 games vs the Pacers this year. Over the next two games your likely to see at least one game that was simliar to the first 3 games. The Bulls will put a good game together at some point. The Pacers had their games to steal already.

The Pacers have a 24-17 record at home compared to a 13-28 record on the road despite having the worst attendance in the NBA. Don't discount there being a home court advantage regardless of how slow to shell out money for tix indiana fans are atm

The Bulls road record is still better then Pacers home record.

In the first 3 games, the Pacers had Jim O'Brien as coach, and that man needed to be fired before this season started. Since Vogel has taken over, they have a winning (albeit slightly) record as opposed to a disastrous record under O'Brien.

Also, the TO differential has been the same in all 3 games, +3 in 2 and +4 in 1 (Pacers 18 TO to Bulls 22). All in favor of the Pacers. In the first 3 games, the differential was +2 in favor of the Bulls. And they only shot 56% in one game. They shot 39% and 35% in the other games, which are quite reasonable.

Yeah, I think those are trends. TO differential is small, FG% just shows the Bulls aren't getting out on shooters.

The Bulls road record is still better then Pacers home record.

With that logic, considering how much better the Bulls' home record was than the Pacers' road record, first 2 games should have been 30 points blowouts. Wait..they weren't?

I see the Bulls jumping to a double digit lead in the first half and never looking back.

Pacers have played hard and they are better than your normal 8th seed in the playoffs.No, they're really not, and Pacers fans don't seem to get that. 8 seeds the past few years have taken series deep against the 1's, and a lot have taken games. INDY hasn't done either yet, it's rather unimpressive to blow two games you should've won because the opponent played poorly.

So the Pacers only lost both games because they played poorly. You can't say they're playing exceptionally well if they can't hold on to leads. On the other hand, game 2 was never really in control. It was a fight the entire game, with both teams going on little runs back and forth. The Pacers only shot 42%, but still still hung with the #1 seed. Game 1 they blew, no contest there. The Bulls had a little help from the refs, but it was a 10 pt lead with 3 mins to go. Refs are a poor excuse.

that seems to be the problem... you don't see reality...

and why do the teams records mean there should be a blowout... the fact that the pacers have a such a bad road record showed in the first two games... who cares if they weren't blowouts....

record indicate wins and losses... not competitiveness and point differential...

the reality is, the bulls played poorly, and still won...

it's great that the pacers played well, but it doesn't amount to jack if they don't win the game...

maybe the games should be weighted where the #1 has to beat the #8 by and average of 10 points in order to be considered a win... that would make your argument more credible...

the way i see it, the pacers will have to play better than they did in the first two games and the bulls will have to play worse than they did in the first two games in order for the pacers to win... home court will not exist... i don't see any blowouts, but i do see another win for the bulls...

The reason the Pacers were in the first two games were because the Bulls played bad games, and still they won. It's quite common for the 8 seed to give the 1 seed problems though. The fact that these wins have been close really means nothing bad about the Bulls and nothing good about the Pacers. It's the norm-and as of late, the Bulls not dropping a game yet is better than previous 1 seeds.

Why wouldn't being up consistently the entire game by 8-12 be fine?

Why do they have to blow out Indy by 20+? Because I can already see a scenario where the Bulls are up by 5-6 after 3 but blow out Indy in the 4th and you'll come in here going "well, they only were barely up through 3, that wasn't impressive"

....The Pacers have been playing like this essentially the entire 2nd half of the season and in small stretches the first half. Nobody knows because we had 0 nationally televised games this year. There were a few nights they stuck us on one of the NBA TV channels, but those don't really count. All they see are ESPN highlights showing 2 Granger 3 pointers, and, if they won, a whole segment on what's wrong with the other team.

When I say "win by 20+" I don't necessarily mean you must win by exactly 20 or more in order to have a successful outing. My use of "20+" is simply a proxy for "win convincingly." Neither of the Bulls' first two wins against Indiana has come in convincing fashion. Indeed, when addressing the "do we need to prove anything beyond winning games?" rhetorical query, yes, of course winning is most important, but if you keep finding yourself in nail-biters against the Pacers, that doesn't bode all that well for your likely performance in future rounds (unless you come and tell me that the Pacers are the toughest matchup for the Bulls of any teams they'll face later on, which would be, in my opinion, a bogus and absurd thing to state).

Like SteBO said, Bulls fans can't be satisfied with their recent play lately. Why? Because they're a better team than what they've showed. If they keep underperforming in the playoffs and allowing teams to remain in games until the final handful of minutes, eventually they're going to lose. And if you do so against teams that are on or above your echelon, not only will you lose a game or two, you'll get knocked out of the playoffs.

Point remains: if the Bulls play in subsequent rounds like they've been playing against Indiana, they wont go very far.

So far in the first round, not a single team has played entirely convincing. Every single team has showed big flaws and faltered big in games (win or lose).

Regardless, the games played today and Saturday (if the Bulls win both), will likely be a week before the 2nd round starts, expecting the play to continue doesn't make much sense.


One reason I actually believe tonight might be the loss of the series and could be good for them is that they respond so well to actually losing a game.


I won't really be concerned for the Bulls until they lose 2 in a row in a series.

Honestly I could live without him. For such a big guy he is soft as **** in the paint which is something I did not expect. He is supposed to be a great finisher and maybe his standing vertical is **** but, he rarely goes back up hard enough to finish. He is just fine posting up and settling for a suspect fade away shot.

For a 20/10 player he does it at a very mediocre pace.

And just to be clear, I'm not trying to discredit him in any way. He's just been mildly underwhelming, and I think it's safe to say it has nothing to do with his injury at this point.

He's a great player, but I expected him to really propel this team. Instead Rose, Deng, Thibs, and the role player acquisitions have been the reason for their success.

I'll give him more time since he's had an injury-ridden first year, but I expected a lot more.
